LESS IS MORE--Off the Edge


I've been living on the edge for so long myself, I wasn't sure I could do this! *wink* (The link for Less Is More is HERE.)

The Hero Arts flower and stem were first stamped with Versamark on SU Crumb Cake cs, then colored with chalks. The greeting was stamped in black, and the card was done--soooo easy!

Here's a Photoshop tip: When I went to photograph the card, it kept flipping up the wrong way to get a clear shot. So I turned it upside down, took the photo, then flipped the image 180 degrees when I cropped it...much easier that way!

Love the flowers you used in this post and the one before....are you thinking SPRING? :0)

That was a great photo tip on this post...along with a lovely card result. Your three cards on the previous post were darling...and what a great use of images you had on file! I, personally, would not have been able to find them in my piles of disorganization! :)

Have a great week! dana
